** Han's dismissive treatment of Obi-Wan would seem HilariousInHindsight since in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', he becomes TheMentor himself, until we see [[spoiler:he dies from MentorOccupationalHazard, too.]]

->'''Darth Vader''': "Don't be too proud of this subpage you've constructed. The ability to edit this page is insignificant next to the power of the Force."

* StarMakingRole: For almost everyone. Lucas, against the advice of his fellow NewHollywood directors, went with a cast almost entirely composed on unknowns, apart from Alec Guinness and Peter Cushing, and the film's [[AndYouThoughtItWouldFail unexpected success]] made them into household names, particularly Creator/HarrisonFord, who so impressed Lucas and Creator/StevenSpielberg he was given [[Franchise/IndianaJones his own trilogy of films]] to headline. The film had the opposed effect on Guinness, the highest profile member of the cast at the time - it's now, [[IAmNotSpock much to his irritation, the only thing anyone remembers him for]].

** The attitude of the head guard in Leia's detention area -- "Where are you taking this -- ''thing?''" suggests that Empire higher-ups look with disdain upon nonhumans.



** One thing the first film ''did'' have was older, even elderly people -- not just Alec Guinness, but many of the background actors in the rebel base sequence. Several of the flyers are distinctly past their prime, not all are conventionally attractive, and Porkins is even overweight! This casting [[FridgeBrilliance creates additional realism]]; these men are veterans who remember and fight for the Old Republic.

* NarmCharm: The movie's dialogue is wooden and very corny, but it's also considered one of the most endearing aspects of the film, to the point where almost all of the film's lines are instantly quotable meme fodder.

It's deliberately written that way, as Lucas was trying to revive/create the quintessential dopy old Saturday afternoon space serial.

** Han's general attitude towards Obi-Wan is this, as in ''The Force Awakens'', he finds himself in basically [[TheObiWan the same role]], guiding the younger protagonists through their adventure. [[spoiler: Also becomes HarsherInHindsight, considering both Obi-Wan and Han meet a similar end.]]

* FirstInstallmentWins: While many feel ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' is better in just about every department, the original ''Star Wars'' is widely considered a game changer in the film industry, kicking off UsefulNotes/TheBlockbusterAgeOfHollywood; is the most successful film in the series accounting for inflation, and had the biggest gross of the Special Edition releases; and [[MayTheFarceBeWithYou Star Wars parodies]] usually take most of their inspiration from ''A New Hope''.

* NeverLiveItDown: Luke "attraction" to Leia is confined mostly to this film and Splinter of the Mind's Eye and never goes anywhere, but in the eye of popular culture he will always be the butt of incest jokes.
